We’ve been daydreaming about spring since the first day of winter, coping with chilly commutes by picturing Aperol spritz-fueled picnics with absurd quantities of strawberries. When April finally rolls around, here we are living our best bunker lives but no complaints here whatsoever because every cloud has a silver lining. Our silver lining looks like, smells like and tastes like food. This week we are all about fresh, creamy yet light chlorophyll-packed roasted asparagus soup.
These recipe also calls for a white wine. It’s important to remember that by the time your dish is done, you won’t be able to tell a $50 bottle from a $10 one so stay away from that expensive wine isle. What actually matters is the type of wine you’re buying. There is a definite no when it comes to cooking with wine. STAY AWAY FROM COOKING WINE. Because there’s no point—you’re already getting rid of the alcohol, so why start with a product that has eliminated it for you? There are also additives in cooking wine, like salt and preservatives that mess with the natural lightness and acidity that wine brings to a dish.
The best white wines for cooking: 〰 Sauvignon Blanc 〰 White Bordeaux 〰 Pinot Grigio 〰 Sancerre 〰 Dry Vermouth Also what to do with the wine you don't cook with. Just kidding—you know what to do. 😉 Adding the home-made sunflower cream is a game changer. It's the perfect way to make this soup creamy while keeping it healthy and giving you lots of healthy fats. It’s a lovely addition to soups, porridges, dressings or sauces.
Best of all? This soup only takes 30 minutes to make.
Let’s get cookin’!!!

The festivities might be looking a little different this year (read: waaaay tamer), but that doesn’t mean the New Year's Eve appetizers have to be. After all the holiday shopping, long-distance Zooming, and bonbon and pumpkin pie making, we’re going to be skipping the laborious dinner spreads in favor of our must-try couch-friendly dip—with side of Amaranth Rice Cakes that bring in the perfect crunch.
Oh and did we mention that this combo pairs nicely with a couple glasses (or even the whole bottle for one; no judgment here) of bubbly?
